yes same as aprilia and augusta , late appia's have the rose joint type trackrod ends this car is a really early 57 registered march 1957 , it has center ash tray in dash, no temp gauge , no heater valve in the cylinder head (has a tap on the back of the block) lots of differences , to quote Norman Stewart and my dad "there is no such thing as a standard Lancia"  Wink

to repaint it would be a major strip down and the car (after looking closely) is beyond a quick repaint , my intension is to do a rolling restoration , I will start with the rear wings and scuttle as I get time and bare metal them , repair and prep them properly , once in prima put a light coat of base coat on to match the rest of the car , if I keep working around it like that it will still be a rat but being restored , eventually it will be ready for a proper paint job , love the car and really want to do it properly but just no time to do it at the moment , I think i'll run it this summer and hopefully (if theres room here) put it in a corner and chip away at it through the winter  Smiley

Ok, understood and makes sense.

well looks like I'm going to have a few problems with DVLA , it seems the chassis number doesn't match their records , they can tell me that on their records it starts with C10 but the last few digits are wrong  Huh? wrong order or totally wrong I have no idea , spoke to a lady in DVLA who was very helpful , she's asked for photo's of chassis number , chassis plate , reg plates and car, so from my point of view isn't it a good job that I didn't restore and remove/replace any of these items, atleast I can prove that its been like it is for years!!!

Oh joy ....
surely it shouldn't be a problem, you have a registration number - can you find an old tax disk or something ??

Good luck !

Well James, I can tell you that putting an Appia gearbox back, one man and no vehicle lift is not an easy job, but it is feasible. One caveat, you need an experienced person to point out that the way to tilt the engine, so that the gearbox will go back on, is to jack up the front of the engine!!!! Jim and I spent a fruitless 4 hours trying to get a Series 1 gearbox onto the back of a Series 2 engine. How were we to know that there are 2 more securing studs on a Series 2. We would have found out much more quickly if we had known how to tilt the engine, I was trying to tilt it by levering the top of the engine at the front!!! Possible but decidedly dodgy and without real control.

Had the same thing happen several times, when I first put "Fay" back on the road they wouldn't let me have her old registration number as they said FAY prefix had never been issued on a 'D' suffix, took me best part of six months to sort out and prove that it had; I next fell foul of them with one of my Dedras, according to the DVLA it was a white 1600cc LHD, in fact it was a black 2.0ie RHD, Tim Speechley got hold of them for me and sorted it out, seems that someone at the DVLA had transcribed it wrong previously.
Another problem was with a Honda Moped, they said the frame number was wrong but wouldn't tell me what the problem was, just that it didn't match, the frame number was stamped on but it was a very poor stamping, finally got it sorted after trying different combinations.
I wonder just how many cockups the DVLA make every year, going by our experiences it must be astronomical!
Good luck James, hope you get it sorted.
